MOLO Wellness Challenge Update: Week 6


Here are the challenges for week six of Baby Boot Camp’s MOLO Wellness Challenge, and how I fared:

Do 15 squats with uppercuts while your kids take a bath

I still give my daughter baths, so I couldn’t do the squats with uppercuts during her bath. I did them after, and on another day.

Consume 7-10 servings of fruits and vegetables today. Your body needs them to offset the oxidative stress that occurs in your body, especially from working out

I started eating salads again for lunch. I don’t think I got 7 – 10 servings, but I really liked the salad I made. I used the Power Greens mix from Trader Joe’s, added red onion, avocado, Heavenly Villagio Marzano Tomatoes, pre-roasted beets, and goat cheese. I made my own dressing, which is vinegar, oil, and citrus with a touch of honey. I’ve eaten this salad the entire week (with a few modifications), and am starting to feel and see a difference.

Cherish your family today. Connect with a friend or family member.

My husband works a lot, so it was nice that he was able to meet up with us for dinner. Even though he had to back to work afterwards, it was nice to have a meal together during the week. Oddly enough, because he does work so much, I frequently connect with friends!

Review the SMART goal you set last month. Assess where you are and what you need to do to meet your goal. Write down (on paper) what your next step is.

These are my SMART goals: meal plan, sleep before 11pm, drink 60 oz water, workout 3x a week, more veggies, and meditate 15 mins a day.
Update: sickness got the best of me (and my daughter), so my workouts got siderailed. Meal planning hasn’t happened. Slept before 11 on occasion. I’ve been good with water intake and increasing veggies. Meditation is probably about 5 minutes a day. I’d like to increase that.

Review your food log today and look for trends. Decide what you’ll work on for the remainder of March.

I haven’t been keeping a food log.

Do 5 squats each time you hear/see the word “MOLO” today. Post on our MOLO Facebook page your total count for the day.

I did 100 squats.

Replace a weekend alcoholic drink with a spritzer or mocktail.

I wish I could have done this, but I went to the Baby Boot Camp’s Mom’s night out at Athleta at Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica Saturday night and enjoyed a glass of champagne with the catered Mendocino Farms food for the event! #sorrynotsorry
